Aerial Photography

I have a few experiences going up to the sky in a helicopter to take aerial photographs for construction projects. Admittedly, my aerial photography is always not up to the mark. It is very challenging as I am afraid of great height. At one time we had to reach the height of 5,000 feet to take photos of the entire project area. Just imagine you are tied to some safety belts and ropes at that height, and have to step out of the helicopter to take the photos. Weather and timing play a very important role in aerial photography, and it is best to take off to the sky in the morning. But very often the timing factor is not in our control as the helicopter may take several hours to reach the destination where the actual photography is taking place.
